Ever wonder what happens when a group of teachers gather together for Kindermusik training? Well, we sing, laugh, play instruments, dance with scarves on our heads, and learn through (and about!) music. In fact, it looks a lot like a Kindermusik class without little kids.
This past July a group of educators gathered at Yimbore in San Antonio de Belén for the Costa Rica Conference. Thirty educators participated and gained hands-on experience learning more about various topics including:
- The importance of music and English language learning in young children
- How Kindermusik integrates with music and movement to teach both English and music
- The importance of digital materials to continue the learning process throughout the week and support a parent’s role as a child’s first and best teacher.
“We would love to give more of these conferences to more schools around the country,” confesses Paula Bassi, International Director Latin America, Central America and Caribbean. “It is wonderful to create a community of Kindermusik schools in Costa Rica and around the world.”
